Wikipedia: “In 1998 Jon F. Vein of the United States filed for, and ultimately secured, a patent (US 6,835,390 B1) for the production of tissue engineered meat for human consumption, wherein muscle and fat cells would be grown in an integrated fashion to create food products such as beef, poultry and fish.”
Step right up and try a delicious burger grown from animal cells in a lab. What could go wrong?
True, there’s no fat in it, and the cells were grown in sketchy fetal bovine serum, and certain, ahem, “growth factors” may have been added, but don’t worry. Slather on the mustard and mayo, close your eyes, and munch.
Rest secure in the knowledge that Bill Gates and Google “don’t- be-evil” co-founder, Sergey Brin, are pumping money into the ongoing research. Brin Burger. Bill Burger.
Food giant Cargill and Bill Gates are collaborating. Brin gave money to a Dutch scientist, Mark Post, to produce a burger manufactured from cow stem cells. And various research labs around the world are experimenting with different ways of “making meat.”
The medium in which the animal cells are grown is fetal bovine serum; so the possibility of various infectious agents getting into the mix is quite real.
If this frankenfood miracle comes to pass, a whole sector of traditional animal farming would eventually shrink and be phased out; but at the same time, the amount of energy and the cost of creating meat in factories in huge vats would be considerable.
Because meat without fat doesn’t have much taste (or a full nutritional profile), fat would have to be added. How? From what source? That problem hasn’t been solved yet.
And of course, if manufactured meat took hold, the producers would have an ideal opportunity to add elements “for our own good.”
“People should have edible vaccines in their food, don’t you think? It would be so much easier than getting a shot…”
Then, imagine something like this: “Fake But Real Meat Inc. announced that six hundred vats of growing pork in its Malaysian factory are contaminated with numerous bacteria and viruses, plus fungi. A temporary power outage may have been to blame. It’s estimated that 40 million pork burgers are loose in thirteen countries. A recall has been issued, but ‘the pig is already out of the pen’.”
If you read the technical literature on this lab-meat movement, you’ll notice one thing is missing: in-depth programs for studying the long-term human health effects. Oops.
“Meat is meat is meat. Who cares where it comes from or who designed it?”
How about the mineral content of lab-meat? What manufacturer will really care about that?
How about the unpredicted consequences of adding fat after the production of the meat itself? How will that work?
How many, and which, chemicals will be added to the vats of growing meat, in order to “keep it safe?”
“Say, Bob, I think we need to put a few hundred more gallons of chlorine into Vat 7 today. Did you catch the smell over there?”
But don’t worry, be happy. It’ll all work out.
Only a few lone meat manufacturers will come up with the idea of making deals with crematoria to divert human corpses to their factories…

Dr. Dean Ornish showed that a plant-based diet and lifestyle program could apparently reverse the progression of prostate cancer; this was for early stage, localized, watch-and-wait cancer. What about for more advanced stage life-threatening disease?

On the afternoon of Aug. 19, 2017, East Coast Time, statistics professor Salil Mehta discovered that he had been banned by Google. As reported by ZeroHedge.com, this entailed having all of his Google-linked accounts erased and rendered inaccessible, from his e-mail to his blog to all of his Google-hosted university pages.
This came as a complete shock to the Columbia University adjunct professor as he had been given no reason nor warning for the total wipeout of every single one of his accounts. All of his repeated attempts to restore those accounts were rejected and explained away by Mehta allegedly violating the company’s Terms of Service…despite the fact that nearly all of his Google-related efforts were dedicated to promoting math theory. In his own words, Mehta’s background was spotless and absent of “political or social agenda”. At no point or time did he advocate or denigrate a certain viewpoint.
“I teach probability math and that’s it,” he stated in his open letter. “[I] have worked with both the Obama administration and advised on polling statistics for the Trump campaign, am an adjunct professor at three top universities, an editor of the peer-reviewed journal of the American Statistical Association, and wrote a best-selling statistics book — all the proceeds of which I gave to charity!”
Mehta then went on to ask if Google intends on treating “all CEOS and professors and politicians” the same way, if they plan on holding kangaroo courts and treating all their customers without tact or grace. He recalled how his appeals were greeted by stone-cold silence for days, and then answered coolly and with little empathy to his situation.
“Fear is running wild about who is next and on what other social media platforms,” he wrote. “We are going to be looking back on this time in Google’s history and those of other social media and know that they have done some very immoral and confusing things, and it has hurt their public reputation with decent people who wanted to grow into the next future with them.”
Fortunately, Mehta’s story ends on a happy note. According to OneNewsPage.com, Google finally relented and restored all of Mehta’s accounts to their former state on Aug. 22, 2017. For his part, Mehta has gone on to state that he has no intention of commenting on the incident any further, nor does he begrudge Google. It remains unknown, however, what the exact reasons are behind the initial ban.
Of course, this whole occurrence could have been avoided had Google actually done their research on Mehta’s body of work, or simply not banned him at all. Google has already earned itself the reputation of being the Internet’s censor and master manipulator, do they really to want be caught doing anything that bolsters that? Mehta’s situation points to a solid “yes”. (Related: WAKE UP: StartPage search engine is powered by Google … Use GoodGopher or DuckDuckGo instead)
Google doesn’t mind being called out for its censorship of different viewpoints. They don’t care that their silencing of “naysayers” affects scientists and statisticians, men and women who, for the most part, are committed to preserving and presenting the facts as they are. Even if they hurt or go against the grain. But then again, that’s exactly why Google would want to suppress them, right? Because they think and speak of something different? Even or especially if it’s the truth?
